I’m struggling pretty bad



Recommended Posts

Hello, I’ve been on purée stage diet for about a week now and it was going so good! But now that I’ve gotten used to what I’ve been able to have it’s hard to switch it up and I’m getting bored with my food choices :( which has made me not want to eat at all. Any tips or ideas on how any of you got through the purée stage?

recipes. I used recipes. There are lots of recipes out there for purée stage when it comes to bariatric post surgery diet if you haven’t looked. I also spent time planning recipes for the next stage.

It was a long phase for sure - you kind of have to power through it. I ate a lot of refried Beans with a little bit of melted cheese. Sometimes I'd add a spoonful of guacamole too.

It is hard and there are no other words for it. Mix up your Protein. I love the Unjury chicken broth about to have one now! Guac, hummus, cheese they are your puree friends.

Hang in there!

I was told I could ingest anything I could throw in a blender - use your imagination. There was no food that was off limits - just the consistency was key...and keeping it low carb/low sugar too. I felt like it was a huge win to go out and get Soups, then bring them home and blend them in my vitamix. Flavor was great - and I could get something that was from someone else cooking. I never went so far as to blend a burger like my surgeon joked about. :P

I eat scrambled egg with tofu, refried Beans, Greek yogurt, hummus, and cottage cheese in a cycle of sorts. When I’m really bored I integrate cream of Soups from the full liquid stage. Only a few more days for me until I progress to “soft” foods. You can do it!!!

The world according to Eggface is pretty much my bible. I linked you to the pureed foods stage.

I kind of hated the first month, but it's only a month. I threw a can of beef vegetable Soup in the blender and enjoyed that quite a bit--just happy to have something not sweet. I had about half a container of yogurt every day, too. I can't recall when I started with cottage cheese, but I've had it probably five days out of seven ever since--with some fruit, it's my standard lunch.

It won't be long--hang in there!

Honey I would bet not. It would be full of sugar and empty calories. If you have a RnY bypass- dollars to donuts you 'll have a dumping spell, with a sleeve- you might merely vomit. And if you manage not to, you're sliding back into the bad habits that made you fat in the first place. If I were there I'd waggle my finger at you, I'm 72, I can get away with it. If Johnnie Cochran could play the race card I'm not above playing the age card. Please take the word of an old fat broad, if you have any just sniff or barely lick the spoon, no big chunks!

       Anyone else eat and drink at the same time? 
      After a couple of months with my new stomach I tried eating and drinking at the same time- nothing bad happened. Keep in mind I only eat 3-5 bites of anything to make sure I save room for water/beer/ wine during my meal. Does anyone else do this? I end up with a total of 1,200-1,500 calories a day including 2 beers or a glass of chardonnay. I have surpassed my goal weight of 135- now I'm 130.02 and continue to lose a pound a week. I eat 5-6 times a day, stick to healthy options and exercise / play sports multiple times a week. Curious to know if anyone else eats and drinks at the same time?

      Well, as of today I am 3.5 weeks out from my gastric bypass surgery. I have had a few high points, but also some lows.  Lowest moments lately are watching people that can have Starbucks Frappaucinos with no issues, and driving by the MN State Fair. The State Fair was always my annual feed fest - tons of eating some of the best tasting items ever! I am skipping this year and it hurts. I am trying to work through my giving up eating the way I used to and I have moments that I question why I did this in the first place. My moods are all over the place and I am trying to find other things that make me happy.  
      I had hit a weight loss stall, but I just went to pureed food on Monday and suddenly I lost another 4 pounds, so that is good. I've only had one time I almost got sick and that was because I ate too much, too fast.  I am praying I don't have any other problems as I add more foods.  I am scheduled to move to solid food on August 27th.
      That's all for now... Megan

        I think most of us have the same grieving feelings that you're having. Even if we normally ate pretty well, there were occasions that we just loved a good pig-out. It's just not the same as saying we can still have small portions of those foods. Sometimes we just want EXCESS! State Fair is an excellent example.

        Maybe try to find related things to celebrate. Like next year, you'll be able to go to the state fair, walk around all day without hurting and ride any ride you want without worrying if you'll fit! You won't have to worry about how strong the folding chairs are at the shows. You may even run into an old friend who will be flabbergasted at how amazing you look ;)
